Boston Struggles to Get Back to Business
A still-shocked Tarek Hassan described the scene in front of his two Tannery stores on Boylston Street Tuesday afternoon, one day after the deadly bomb attacks near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Hassan, who ran the race with Tannery store manager Andrew Hampshire, said he was still reeling from the incident. (He was about a half a mile away from finishing the 26.2-mile race when he heard the explosion.) "This seems like the next big thing after Sept. 11," Hassan said. "It gives us a flashback to what happened [then]."
